Sure, Adidas may have just revealed a smartwatch that’s geared toward runners, but golfers too need some love from wearable makers. As such, Garmin just announced the successor to its Approach S3 golf watch, the aptly named Approach S4.
This GPS-ready wrist companion offers a lot of the same functionality as its predecessor, although there are a few notable additions in this edition. Namely, the Approach S4 now offers a new, high-resolution display, a battery capable of lasting up to 10 hours on a charge and the ability to access data from more than 30,000 international golf courses (compared to the 27,000 on the S3). Additionally, Garmin’s added a Smart Notification feature that allows users with an iPhone to receive notifications right on their watch, some of which include emails, text messages and more. The Approach S4 will be R4899 when it becomes available later this month at retailers like thePro Shop and Golfers Club.
